    He had a very good run. Still, it's a shame to lose someone with his talent

    Obligatory:

    I love the episode when Laura accidentally reveals he wears a toupee, and she gets called to his office, where he is talking to his toupee on a mannequin head.

    This surprises me, because I saw a picture of him yesterday on Twitter with his daughter Annie and Mel Brooks - it was VERY recent based on the matching shirts. He looked so energetic!

    I read somewhere recently that Reiner and Mel Brooks were still hanging out and that they would watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy together.

    He was also a writer on Sid Caesar's show in the early days of television.

    Reiner and Steve Martin had a string of movies together (Reiner directing and Martin staring) in the late 70s/early 80s. None better than The Jerk. He was also nominated for 16 Emmy's and won nine...most for his writing on the fantastic **** Van Dyke Show.

    I learned of him, as many younger people probably did, from Ocean's Eleven...
